The Command and Control Systems group comprises the inter-organizational and, if necessary, multinational linking of information and communication systems from the areas of information acquisition, decision-making, mission execution and control. The technical networking aims to provide the actors in the decision-making process with the most comprehensive and up-to-date situation information possible in a task-related manner and to implement efficient and effective processes.
On behalf of the public sector and industry, the group deals with the following aspects of network-centric warfare on the basis of in-depth process knowledge in reconnaissance and related areas:
- System integration: software engineering methods for the efficient coupling of existing systems based, among other things, on service-oriented architectures
- shared information space: building by tapping and linking heterogeneous information sources, task-centric input, aggregation, fusion, filtering and search in the information space
- Business processes/orchestration: semantic service discovery, support for deriving dynamic workflows based on rule systems.
The methodological basis of the group's work is the model-based approach to designing the "enterprise architecture". The derivation of integrative data and interaction models for knowledge representation and interoperable system integration forms the essential basis of this approach.
